In 2006, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was elected Bishop of Rome and took the name Benedict XVI. At age 78 he was personally surprised by his election, which delighted conservatives as a sign of continuity in the Church, and dismayed liberals, who had hoped for many changes upon the passing of John Paul II. This one-volume compendium, culled from Ratzinger’s writings and speeches, is the best source for understanding the concerns that will animate the agenda of this controversial pontiff.
